One of the recent incidents that took place on 22nd November 2021 is Seth Rollings being attacked by the fans at Monday night Raw. Seth was booked in a match with Finn Bálor but Seth attacked brutally on Finn before the match could start. He Curb Stomp Finn and left him unconscious in the ring and walked away. 

Rollins while walking towards the entrance, a 24 year aged fan named Elisah Spencer jumped off the barricade and delivered a spear on Seth and both fell down. Seth soon grabbed the fan in a headlock and then the security suddenly came into action and separated the fan from Seth. Luckily Seth didn’t get any injury. While the security team was taking the fans out from the stadium, Seth could blow some punches to take revenge but he didn’t. This shows how professional wrestler Seth is, that he still respected that WWE fan after even being attacked by him.

The fan was arrested by the police and in interrogation, he revealed the real reason why he attacked Seth Rollins. According to the fans he was in a chat with Seth Rollins (which was definitely the fake Seth Rollins account). Seth promised him that he would help Elisah get into a wrestling career and even took money for it but never helped him. This anger made him no choice but to take such horrifying action.

Another fans who attacked WWE wrestlers was a crazy guy. A long time ago when CM Punk was working with WWE, he was carrying a heel character. On 8th October 2012 at Raw CM Punk was in a match with Mr. McMahon. As Punk was about to deliver a GTS on McMahon, Ryback music hit and later John Cena also showed up to surround CM Punk. But Punk sees the opportunity to jump off the barricade and run into the audience.

Mr. McMahon then picked the mic and gave an ultimatum to Punk to face either John Cena or Ryback. While McMahon was delivering the ultimatum, CM Punk was standing with the crowd. CM Punk said in an interview that it was a terrifying moment for him. He could hear the crowd saying let’s push him off the stairs.

He was even pushed and punched in his back but he didn’t break the character. But the water crossed the nose when a man hit hard on the back of Punk’s head. CM Punk loses his temper and his anger explodes but as says , an act done in anger always proves to be a wrong decision. The heat of CM Punk just dropped on an innocent fan named Charles Schmidt. In retaliation to the attack, Punk turned around and hit the fan just behind him but the actual culprit was hiding behind Charles Schmidt. Punk, after knowing the truth, apologizes to Schmidt as he hit him in a misunderstanding.

There was a time when WWE tried hard to push hard Roman Reigns as a babyface. But fans just got obsessed with the fact that how much spoon-feeding is being done by Mcmahon to Roman and another talent not getting the opportunity.

This incident also took place during a live event. On 8th August 2015 in a WWE live event show in British Columbia Canada, Roman Reigns and Bray Wyatt were booked for a match. During the match, a fan who had a Money in the Bank replica threw his replica briefcase inside the ring when Roman was on his knees. The briefcase hit hard on the back of Roman’s head and the match had to be put on hold. The security team arrested the fan and threw him out of the arena.  WWE even puts a ban on him from attending any further WWE shows as the audience.

Luckily Roman didn’t suffer any serious injuries and was able to continue the match after recovering from the head injury. During police interrogation, the fan revealed that the other fans present around him dared him to throw that briefcase inside the ring.
